Joe Rogan Cancels Sold Out Show Over Vaccine Mandates

Another day, another time for Joe Rogan to rage at COVID-19 measures.

The podcaster's sold-out show in Vancouver, Canada, which was scheduled for April 20, has been cancelled.

Rogan wrote on his Facebook page he was rescheduling it to October 24 due to Canada's vaccine mandates


He had already speculated on an episode of his podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, earlier this week that he would likely have to cancel the show because of the proof of vaccination requirements in British Columbia.

The province requires proof of vaccination for some travel and for access to some events, services and businesses, including the Rogers Arena where the Rogan show was scheduled to take place.

On his podcast, Rogan said he wasn't even sure he'd be able to get into the country as he is unvaccinated.

"I should probably say this because I haven't yet. My 4/20 show that's sold out in Vancouver, I don't think that's happening," he said.

"I don't think I can even get into the country. I'm not vaccinated. I'm not gonna get vaccinated. I have antibodies. It doesn't make any sense."

Yes, that was his '4/20' show. Edgy.

Rogan tested positive for Covid in September and announced via Instagram he would be 'throwing the kitchen sink at it'.

He listed a significant number of treatments he would be undertaking in an effort to fight the virus, including monoclonal antibodies, the steroid prednisone, a Z-Pac, a vitamin drip and ivermectin.

None of those treatments have been proven to cure COVID-19 and several health experts have condemned the use of drugs like ivermectin in the treatment of the virus.

He later clarified he had taken the human form of ivermectin, not the version meant for animals which can be incredibly dangerous for human consumption.

Health experts still strongly recommend people who have previously contracted COVID-19 get vaccinated as the level of immunity from having the virus changes from person to person and isn't as effective as the vaccine.

On Twitter, people are celebrating Canada for its requirements that caused the cancellation of the show.

UFC boss and close friend of Rogan, Dana White, credited the broadcaster for helping him beat COVID when he tested positive over Thanksgiving.

"I get out of the cold plunge and I get in the steam, and I spray the eucalyptus and I couldn't smell anything," White said.

"So I open the bottle, I start sniffing the bottle of eucalyptus, and I'm like yeah, I got no smell. So you know what this means. I literally got out of the steam, picked up my phone and called Joe Rogan."

Unlike Rogan, White is vaccinated and said he wasn't a 'vax conspiracy theorist', but credited Rogan as a 'brilliant guy'.

It should go without saying at this point, but just a reminder that media personalities are not scientists or health experts.
